The Lyrics

In college, a friend & I wrote a bunch of Smiths parodies. Not enough homework, I guess. Here's one of my favorites of the ones I wrote.
THE LITTLE PRINCE IS DEAD

Farewell to your planets and flowers
I can't believe I've spent all these hours
with some mutton-crazed mutant from Mars!!
(I'm truly sorry, but he's a royal pain in the arse!)
I thought I could get away -- appease this spaceman with a mouton and then fix my plane,
Return en France alive and sane...
So I checked all the small aircraft's mechanical parts,
But I was shocked into shame to discover
How truly lacking I am in the visual arts
"That one is sick! -- draw me another."
Oh, has the world changed, or have I changed?
Oh, has the world changed, or have I changed?
Some squat ingrat demanding sheep! -- I swear to God!
I draw a mean hat... care to see that?
So I broke into a panic, pen in hand, eye on my toolbox...
He said: "You're drawing me a sheep in a box?"
I said: Let's see what we can fix besides the airplane!
We could go for a walk where it's quiet and dry, and talk about precious things,
But when you're stranded in the desert, no one talks about strangulation!
We could go for a walk where it's quiet and dry, and talk about precious things,
Like... baobobs, and... bleeding sheep
(These are the things that kill me)
We could go for a walk where it's quiet and dry and talk about precious things,
Till a spanner flattens your head!
(ABANDONONS NOS MOUTONS!!!!)

I'll be home free in a few hours...
I'll be sure to send you flowers.
Le petit prince est mort, and my plane, enfin, may fly again!
I'll be home in a matter of hours...
I'll be sure to send you flowers.
The Little Prince is dead. He's just lost his head.

Life is seldom long when you annoy me...
Life is seldom long when you annoy me.
"Revenons a nos moutons" is an expression that means "let's get back to business"
